Description
Not a good picture--but there's a reason it is included. When the Anderson was new, heavy emphasis was on destroyers' antiaircraft mission. Every available space had antiaircraft guns, and in this view you can see just how close the three twin 20 mm guns are to each other on the fantail. These were removed soon after commissioning. The open hatch at left leads to the aft deck division's quarters. 1945. Photo by Claude Crowley.

Description
At the commissioning ceremony, October 26, 1945. The officers are just astern of the No. 3 gun mount. The hatch at right leads to the second deck division living quarters. The lady with her face partly covered by the microphone stand is Richard B. Anderson's mother. The officers include Sandberg, Brown, Smith, Green, Keplar, Chivets, and Metz. I am uncertain which is which. Photo by Claude Crowley.
